WHAT WE DO

Empowering creative entrepreneurs

and promoting Chicago as a hub of creativity and innovation

From humble beginnings — it’s how many great stories start in Chicago.

What’s born in a garage, in a workshop, or with a phone can end up bigger than life.

This is where ideas are tested and creatives invent their own futures.

It’s where blue collar creatives get their first break, and no matter how bright they shine, make us proud of our roots.

Whether you’re here to be a maker or to support the makers, one thing’s certain: Chicago’s where greatness is made.
